    The top brake lights works when braking but the other 2 do not...i replaced both bulbs and replaced a fuse but still no success. Only the top brake light works...all other lights work as well.

    When lights are turned on, the headlights work fine, but interior dash panel lights and running lights all around are out. I had it fixed before to the tune of $600...supposedly a 'short', but the same problem happened 6 months later. Blinkers and brakelights work fine, too, when activated.

    I'm having the same problem with my 2000 zx3. Head lights work, blinkers work too.. It's only the tail lights and dash board lights that aren't working.
    What does replacing the brake light switch do? My mechanics are completely stumped.....

Had this problem myself. Try replacing your brake light switch, they are not real expensive and can be changed in a matter of mineuts. It is located by following your brake pedal all the way up to the top, when you get there , there id a switch that when you push down on the brake it releases the button to put you brake lights on and when you take your foot off the brake itallows the switch to go back.

I have a 2000 ford focus SE AND driver side brake light will not work...have only tried changing bulbs

Could be in your signal switch..Get someone to watch your brake lights,,and apply your brakes,,and move your blinker switch around and see if the brake light tries to come on..The brake light circuit runs through the switch...Even if the blinkers work it can have a short in the switch,...Then if that dont work,,take a test light and see if your getting voltage to the light...If so wiggle the wires on the light socket and see if there is a bad connection
